Playfully weaving together high fashion and street style, luxury and ease, Karen Walker has cultivated an effortless ‘high-casual’ aesthetic.
Preeminent New Zealand designer Karen Walker is equal parts local fashion royalty and international design wunderkind. She blends disparate influences – ‘masculine and feminine, tailored and street, luxury and non luxury, dark and super cute’ – into an original and unpretentious style, reflected in her chic flagship store at Britomart.
Showcasing all dimensions of Karen Walker design from clothing and eyewear to diamonds and beach towels, the store is located underneath the beautiful Hotel Britomart. It is also home to her Playpark range. Playpark presents a surprising, ever-changing and fun-yet-luxurious edit of unbeatable cult classics and hard-to-find special pieces by Karen’s favourite brands from around the world. Combining luxury, femininity and street, you’ll find coveted limited-edition collaborations amongst exclusive drops of streetwear and elevated everyday classics from the likes of Levi’s, adidas Originals and Lacoste.
